NOW, I GET TO SERVE THE WORLD AUTHENTICALLY
There’s a saying that plus size women are meant to be doctors, and lawyers, and politicians, and teachers, and raise their families so that this world can be a better place.
But for me, what I have today is enough for me to move forward. That’s been helpful to me as I quit my corporate job, became an entrepreneur, and have done my part to make fashion more inclusive.
If I had chosen to settle into that job, that relationship, life would have been fine, but it wouldn’t have been the life that was waiting for me. We all know what it feels like to have something that’s perfectly fine, but it’s not the thing that lights us up 100%.
Making the choice to give up what’s easy and search for what is unknown is really, really scary, but that act of being uncomfortable and not knowing is also about dreaming or imagining for yourself. It can be the difference between a person living an ordinary life or an extraordinary life. It’s not always easy but it’s always worth it.
PURPOSE IS VERY FREEING BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE JUST ONE
Today We Will is such a powerful statement to me because I always feel like today is the best time to do anything that I want to do. I’ve learned over time that things I need are in my hands right now. Any dream that I have, the next logical step, I have everything I need to take it. I get to find new purpose here and there, so it’s ever-evolving for me.
Sometimes people ask me how to make a profit, and I tell them you should find your purpose and the profit will make itself clear.
